Senior Master Sergeant (retired 1975) George Earl Warhul, age 83, of Blackshear, passed away early Saturday morning, surrounded by his family.

Mr. Warhul, known to many as “Pap”, was born in Johnstown, PA on November 1, 1935 to the late Stanley Joseph and Jennie Belle Warhul. He served twenty years in the United States Air Force, and then served the next twenty years for the United States Postal Service (USPS) in Hillsborough County, Florida.

He was a member of the Victorville Masonic Lodge #634, Victorville, California and also the Scottish Rite Egypt Shriners Temple in Tampa, Florida.  He was recently awarded his 50 year member pin.    He was also a member of First United Methodist Church in Blackshear.

He spent the remainder of his life spending every moment with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He loved golfing, hunting, fishing, and scuba diving. He became a certified scuba diver alongside his five grandchildren and dove a 120 foot dive at the Thunderbolt Reef in Marathon, Keys. He watched many soccer, basketball, football, baseball games and dance recitals over the years, but the one thing he enjoyed the most was to be surrounded by his family. Saturdays were days to spend making memories, eating great food and making sure everyone felt his love.

His family describes him as a hero, a patriarch, a leader, kind, loving, funny, witty and unforgettable.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his late wives, Lillian D. Warhul (2003) and Roberta J. Warhul (2018); and 4 brothers and 3 sisters.

Survivors include his daughters, Monica (Charles) Klein and Dodie (Earl) Gregory, both of Clearwater, FL; his grandchildren, Billy (Lauren) Klein of Blackshear, GA, Kelly (Jeffrey) Schnur of Jacksonville, FL, George (Leah) Klein of Parrish, FL, Heather Klein of Blackshear, GA, EG (Liz) Gregory of Gibsonton, FL, Laurie (Scott) Wisotsky of St. Petersburg, FL, and Holly Sharma of Bradenton, FL; 13 great grandchildren, Kendal and Jackson Dubberly, Zachary Gilbert, Logan Carter, Caleb, Jackson, and Luke Schnur, William Klein, Lyla Klein, Emily and Alex Wisotsky, and Mela and Anika Sharma; and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

There will be a special military tribute to honor Senior Master Sergeant Warhul on Friday, July 26th at 10am at the Blackshear City Cemetery.

The family will receive guests at the home of Billy and Lauren Klein.

Monica, Dodie and families, I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a fun loving guy and I know he loved his kids, son-in-laws, grandkids and great grandkids. When he was feeling melancholy when we were kids he would always pull us close and say you know your Uncle George loves ya. I pray God gives you comfort during this time. Know that he is up with your Mom, probably playing a few rounds of golf and/or out boating. Love to all, The Warhuls, (Uncle John's kids)
